Chattahoochee Park Sees Rise in Visitors

By  | 

An old Alabama state park has a new manager and a new charm about it.

A hidden gem, Chattahoochee Park is on Highway 95 just south of Gordon.

Kim Taylor took over as the park's manager in February.

Originally from the Gordon area, she says the opportunity was an answer to a prayer.

The park is one of Alabama's oldest, it was concepted in 1936.

"Everything is so expensive, travel is so expensive and we've got the beach, we've got fishing, we've got hiking, we've got picnic, we've got it all here at home and it's relaxing. It's beautiful, it's relaxing and it's like you’re out in the country but your still close to town,” Taylor said.

Usually entry is $2.00 a person for the park, but to celebrate their 78th anniversary this Saturday they're offering free entry.
